According to Wikipedia, 450 versions of the Bible have been translated into languages of the English people. There are only three in Persian, and one of those is a paraphrase. A fourth, the Millennium Bible, will be out soon. This new translation (New Testament, Psalms and Proverbs is published) is already enriching the life of the Iranian church. A lot of focus is often given to those engaged in the brave work of distribution, but we need to spare a thought for the patient souls who work through the text checking for the smallest mistake. Their work is crucial. Once checked, then there is the type-setting, and as we all know computers can have a mind of their own. And….a host of other issues arise, never known by the reader, but someone behind the scenes has worked tirelessly to ensure a great Bible is published.
